Beddy visits… Huddersfield

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Today I popped along to Huddersfield to have a go at playing a game of Rugby League. The sport is very close to the people of Huddersfield’s hearts as it was where the sport evolved from Rugby Union. The town has a Rugby League team called the Huddersfield Giants who at the moment are 2nd in the Super League table.

Huddersfield is quite an old town that is well known for making cloth, maybe some of the material made to make your clothes came from Huddersfield. You can still see lots of the old textile mills as you travel around the city, some of them are very beautiful.

Beddy visits… Hull

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

This week I’ve stopped off in Hull. Hull is by the sea but it’s a bit cold today to go fishing so I’ve come to The Deep!

The Deep is the only Submarium in the world. The tanks contain thousands of sea creatures including seven different kinds of shark. I had a great day looking at all the interesting sea life and learned lots about life under the sea.

Beddy visits… Brighton

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Today I’ve stopped for an ice-cream in the seaside town of Brighton.

The town is home to the world’s oldest aquarium, it’s 140 years old this year-that’s a lot of candles to fit on a birthday cake!

Brighton has a  big Pier where you can shop, play games, and if you’re feeling brave you can have a go on the ride. The ride is 125 feet tall, which is too high for me as I like to keep my wheels on the ground!

Beddy visits… Southampton

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

I’ve been bowling in Southampton on the world’s oldest bowling green which is over 700 years old. It’s not the kind of bowling where you try to knock down pins, but where you roll a ball as close as possible to a smaller ball. It’s a fun game to play in the garden.

There is also a marina in Southampton which often has cruise ships that set sail from the docks, the QE2 and the Titanic have sailed from here. It’s great to stand on the beach and wave to people going on their travels. I had better get back on mine…
